USA: BlueView Technologies Presents New P450 Series
BlueView Technologies, the world leader in compact acoustic imaging and measurement technology, has answered the call for a long range imaging sonar with a wide field-of-view – the all new P450 Series now with S2 electronics is available in five new models including two deepwater options.
Each model has a maximum detection range of 250 meters (820 ft.), while delivering crisp, real-time imagery at medium to long ranges. These forward-looking systems are engineered to allow operators to detect, track, monitor, and navigate across extended distances, dramatically improving situational awareness and reducing reaction time. The P450 Series is available in three different field-of-view options including the ultra-wide 130° for the largest detection area available from a compact, portable system.
“The new P450 Series is a multibeam imaging sonar game changer, the real-time feedback coupled with the expanded detection range exceeds anything out there,” stated Jason Seawall, BlueView COO. Seawall added “these new systems are perfect for work-class ROVs, operators will now be able to navigate, detect, track, and monitor targets in real-time over a very large area.”
BlueView is the leader in 2D imaging and 3D scanning sonar solutions with more than 500 installed systems worldwide. BlueView Technologies’ advanced sonar systems are currently deployed on AUVs, ROVs, surface vessels, fixed installations, and portable tripods, and have been adopted by leading manufacturers and service providers to support mission critical operations.
